We had our opportunities but didn't finish. Hats off to Mammoth for an excellent played match. Kudos to both sides. I will state that the officiating needs to be consistent and more fouls need to be called. That said, the officiating did not make the difference in the match. My statement is directed strictly at the officials and their responsibility to protect the players on both sides!!!
